Free anti theft screws on offer to reduce number plate thefts in Market Bosworth PDF Print E-mail
01 August, 2011

Officers from Market Bosworth are taking measures to reduce incidents of number plate thefts in the area.

The Market Bosworth neighbourhood team have purchased a stock of anti-theft number plate screws in an attempt to drive down vehicle crime in the area.

The screws are far more difficult for thieves to remove, and can be fitted as a replacement to the number plate screws which dealerships fit as standard.

Sergeant Matt Trott from Hinckley police said: “Number plates are often stolen by criminals who use them on their vehicles to evade detection during a crime where a vehicle is used.

“I would advise motorists to report the theft of a number plate to the police immediately or you could run the risk of becoming falsely implicated in criminal activity. It will also allow us to identify and investigate promptly any offence committed by the vehicle bearing the stolen number plates.

“The screws are available free of charge for the residents of Market Bosworth and neighbouring villages, including the northern parishes of Markfield, Ratby, Groby and Stanton.

“If you would like a free set of clutch-head screws please contact a member of your neighbourhood team or email Sergeant Matt Trott   with your name and address or visit Market Bosworth police station which is open to the public on Wednesdays between 10am and 12pm.

“We also have a limited supply of tamper proof tax disc holders and steering locks for older cars.

“Officers can deliver them to your home address and will even help you to fit them.

“You can also contact us through Facebook at our own dedicated Market Bosworth Police page or on Twitter @lpbosworth.”
